Poems From The Porch
Just For You
The sunlight is tickling the shimmering grass this morning,
and the crows are laughing in response.
The sky is fully awake,
rolling back the cover of the barely-perceptible clouds.
I am warmed today by fleece and fire, and
enfolded by awe and a cotton blanket.
My heart has expanded,
beyond the borders of my flesh, in gratitude
for the picture Love is painting,
for the song Love is singing, and
for the cozy comforts Love is providing
—just for me.
Look around right now,
then close your eyes and listen.
Feel the fabric embracing your body.
Love is offering these gifts here and now
—just for you.
